Netfinity Manager 5.0
Through Netfinity Manager 5.0, Data Scrubbing can be performed via synchronization as a background task while data is being accessed by users. Netfinity Manager supports either local or remote access on the server console under OS/2 or NT. Synchronization can be scheduled to run at off-peak hours without requiring user intervention by using Netfinity's event scheduler. In order to use Netfinity 5.0 to schedule data scrubbing, please download NFSORAID.EXF from http://www.us.pc.ibm.com/files.html. This file contains updated Netfinity program files which are required for scheduling data scrubbing on controllers with the write policy set to write-back cache. When installed with the NetFinity Manager code the following operating systems are affected: OS/2, WINNT, and WIN95. System administrators can also use Netfinity Manager's out of band, or serial connection, capabilities to dial into a machine that has Netfinity Manager installed, and access the entire network. This 'out of band' support is particularly important since this allows LAN administrators to dial in, from remote locations to initiate an array synchronization. All these features, plus many more, are discussed in the Netfinity Manager 5.0 Users Guide.
Netfinity Manager 5.0 is included in ServerGuide version 3.1 and above, which is shipped with every IBM server.
